Used for a Baby Monitor


This is a fairly standard CCD camera. nothing special on picture quality but gets the job done. no night vision and unfortunately does not pic up IR light too well (I tried to illuminate externally).

Great Pan Tilt camera. I used it as a baby monitor for 2 years until it fell off the mount and is now stuck in "update firmware" loop. Was able to watch my kids at work and also allow grandparents to see them grow up (from 1000 miles away). two way...

this is not a zoom camera. It is straight digital and is extremely grainy when used. no night vision

Cisco Wireless-G PTZ Internet Camera


Purchased from MacConnection, but not Mac Compatible. A Wintel computer is required to set up. I spent ninety minutes on the phone with a Cisco Engineer who kept asking if I had access to a Wintel computer. Ultimately I returned this item to...

Awesome image quality


I love this camera so much I bought another to monitor my garage when I'm not in there working but the bay is left up to help keep the garage cool during the day. Wireless connection is stable at more that 200ft from my access point for months at a...

Does everything it says


Yes, it does everything it says. You can do an internet search for great independent tutorials. If you don't have a static IP address, you can get a free account with tzodotcom that will take care of this. I'm not sure about the 1 lux low-light...

Product Specifications

The Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. The camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG), which can be used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality, making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS) device. The Cisco WVC210's audio capabilities include two-way audio, an embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression. With extensive support for features such as IP multicast, Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Real Time Protocol (RTP), and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), it enables video to be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications, such as 3G phones and QuickTime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones. Network protocols such as 802.1p priority, 802.1Q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS (DDNS) are also supported. The WVC210 can also be managed securely using HTTPS. The pan/tilt and digital zoom functions allow you to remotely control the camera movement and focus, giving you maximum remote flexibility. Up to 10 simultaneous unicast users can access the camera at any time. Software is included for monitoring multiple cameras and recording to your hard drive, with advanced search by time and date. Recording can be set up to start by motion trigger or by manual or scheduled recording. Playback is available on Windows Media Player, with no need for a proprietary player. You can also enable security mode, which tells the camera to send a message with a short attached video to up to three email addresses whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log in to the live video stream if the situation warrants. Wireless security features include Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), and WPA2.
